In a recent video left by Jada Pinkett Smith, Jada shares her opinion/reason to why she will be boycotting this year’s Academy Awards. According to Jada, the lack of minorities getting nominated for an Oscar has left her and film director Spike Lee in an ultimatum to not watch this year’s award ceremony. Interesting enough the Oscars will be hosted by actor/comedian Chris Rock; a position that has him comprised given the backlash of lack of diversity.
After watching the video below and hearing about the statistics of Oscar nominees do you think African Americans should boycott the Academy Awards? Could it be a possibility, given that nominations are subjective, that the Academy Awards committee simply saw 20 actors and actresses who they sought were better candidates despite race? Let us know what you think below!
